Athentech Imaging Perfectly Clear Plug-In For Photoshop 1.7.3l

the perfectly clear plug-in is available as a free standalone version and at a price of $199. you can also use a free version that comes bundled with a number of other similar plug-ins. the latest update to perfectly clear for photoshop includes presets that can be applied with a single click. these include the companys portrait and retro presets, which both look beautiful and are fairly easy to apply. in addition, the plug-in now lets you apply effects to the current image, and these include special film effects, a few of which look very nice. in addition, you can edit the current image, and there are a number of presets for color effects, such as orange or blue. the latest update to perfectly clear for photoshop also includes a number of presets for different film looks.

while the built-in features of photoshop are effective, perfectly clear has the ability to make your photos look better, whether you need it or not, with just a few clicks. while the price of perfectly clear is a bit steep for some users, it is worth it for serious photographers who will use it regularly. if you need serious image-correction power, perfectly clear will do the trick and more, quickly and easily.

the perfectly clear plug-in allows you to make a number of changes to your images, and with just a few clicks you can make them all better. some of the features include a side-by-side view, where you can see what you can change, and there are settings for automatically applying the changes. you can also make your own presets and save them, and have them applied to a photo in a matter of seconds.

actually, i dont know why i am discussing this. if perfectly clear works well for you, well just use it. if not then stick with what you know or use a different method. i am just really glad i got the chance to look at what it offers before buying.
we can see in the above comparisons that there are no color panels because perfectly clear does such a good job with color. if you want to learn more about color correction, please read color correction online .
you can see the same above image with the first option from perfectly clear selected. this is probably the best settings you can get in the classic view mode. you can also go directly to effects, and also place a button on the right side to show you the options in effects. what i find is that you need to do quite a bit of trial and error to get to a setting that you are happy with. and this is with the exact same image.
the next tab is presets. these are presets that perfectly clear applies to your image. below these sliders is where you place the tab of presets that you have created. you can use these presets to apply a wide variety of different corrections to your images. i do not have time to show you my presets, but i will show you what a few of the presets look like. i have also added a few more in the above image. you can see that some of these presets look a lot better than others.
though there are almost a dozen plug-ins bundled in the suite, they’re clearly designed to complement each other and work well together. as an example, i selected the set of settings in the “advanced” tab of the flat light box and selected apply for the pre-sets for all the plug-ins included in the suite. i could then use the adjustment sliders in the plug-in to fine tune the adjustment as desired. the same could be achieved by exporting the flat light preset as a photoshop adjustment layer. another nice feature is that many of the pre-sets are accurate representations of popular lightroom presets. in the default mode the plug-in offers the same four pre-sets (i’d love to see more creative options for the pre-sets) as the complete plug-in and the raw processor plug-in that ships with lightroom. there are over a hundred pre-sets available, including some created by photoshop for photographers . there are also a few presets for a variety of artisans programs. the only real flaw in perfectly clear, imho, is that the individual pre-sets have no filtering (such as silver efex pro 2), while you can use filters in both photoshop and lightroom. also, when you add or change a filter, you have to use the default lightroom or photoshop preset, but there’s no way to see what the filtered version looks like if you’re editing a new photo.
